Do male cats become more aggressive with women when the woman is due to menstruate?

Asked by nebule (16436points) September 27th, 2013

Just wondering if anyone else has had this experience?

I’ve never noticed anything like this in a life time of cat ownership.
Highly doubtful, especially if the cat is neutered too.

I’ve never noticed my cat acting any differently. He’s also neutered so that may have something to do with it.

I doubt it.

Quite possible. I knew a guy who found it entertaining to take his menstruating wife to the elk exhibit at the zoo. The bull elk would bugle and other things when he caught scent of her.

My Schrödinger is unaltered, so far, and is always pretty much the same with me.

My hubby’s old dog, Bub, who died five years ago, was always extra cuddly during my time of the month.

I’ve noticed this as well, with my neutered male. He becomes aggressively affectionate when I’m menstruating. He slams his head into me repeatedly, grooms me, and follows me around the house like a puppy.
